Let Them Eat Cake


I'm a blogger cliche I know, but I genuinely believe there are few things nicer in this world than a really good cupcake. When Laura from Airy Fairy Cupcakes contacted me and asked me if I'd like to sample some of her gorgeous creations I was hardly going to say no, was I?!

They arrived at my door on Monday evening, a beacon of shining baked goodness in the rainy, cold night. Beautifully packaged and for all the world looking like little works of art, rather than just cupcakes. I was lucky enough to receive Cookies & Cream, Raspberry Ripple, Naughty Nutella and Very Vanilla.

I may be a Slimming World convert and generally I stick to the eating plan 99% of the time, but I couldn't help diving headfirst into the box and devouring the Cookies & Cream cupcake within seconds. I basically inhaled it. And it was GOOD. So good. The perfect amount of rich buttery frosting, light fluffy cake and perfect flavours. Delicious.

Airy Fairy Cupcakes are based in Didsbury, South Manchester and currently deliver to parts of Manchester and Cheshire (but if you're further afield just contact Laura and I'm sure she'll be able to help). However, there is a shop on the horizon and I'll definitely be paying it a vist (or ten) when it opens.

Cupcakes make life in January better. Fact.

As someone who is sitting here sucking Galaxy chocolate squares (1 syn each) to make them last longer, I am soooooo staring at the screen and drooling. They look so lush.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
